Burst pressure test bench up to 15,000 bar. Burst pressure tests are used to determine the maximum pressure that a component will withstand before rupturing.
Burst Test Rigs With
Programmable Pressure Ramp
Burst testing is a destructive pressure test that is used to determine the absolute maximum pressure at which a given component will burst or fail when pressurized under controlled conditions. Consequentially it can be of value for design engineers to assist with material selection, the thickness of the component, the geometry of the components, including cross-holes, and more.
Hence, a burst test can be used to determine the pressure at which a component or assembly begins to plastically deform and identify its ultimate material strength.
Burst tests have a large field of applications for e.g. plastic components in the automotive industry and low-pressure ranges of 20 bar. Nevertheless, pressures can go up to thousands of bars for some applications.
Typical test media can be air, water, oil, glycol, water/glycol mixtures, or others.
We at Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau offer various burst pressure test rigs in order to prove the quality of fluid-carrying pressure vessels. Typical inquiries are for hoses, pipes, tubes, sensors, various automotive components and other pressure vessels. Put them to the test with Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau pressure test rigs until they burst.
Burst Test Stand up to 4000 bar
In machinery and vehicles, fluid-carrying components are exposed to extreme conditions. The fatigue and material strength of pumps, pressure vessels, tubes, and pipes made of metal or plastic are tested through dynamic and static pressure tests such as leak or burst pressure tests. Depending on the area of application, the DUT tests are required with different test media under varying temperature conditions. Poppe + Potthoff supplies the turn key test rig together with a quick-change device for the test objects and an optional climate chamber.
High-Pressure Burst Test Stand
Poppe + Potthoﬀ Maschinenbau develops and manufactures customer-specific pressure test rigs for testing DUTs during operation and under fatigue. These test benches enable customers to test all sorts of components such as fittings, airbags, hoses, tubes, accumulators, sensors, hydraulic components and other pressure vessels until they burst. Pressure and volume can be accurately increased up to a pmax. of 15 000 bar. Depending on the pressure unit in the test rig the pressure curve can be controlled to enable hold times, pressure reduction and generally a flexibly programmed pressure curve.
Burst Pressure Test Stand for Plastic Components
The test bench is a turnkey system and has been developed for the plastic component industry. Our modular system allows easy adoption of requirements for customer specifications. DUTs can be easily changed by using quick-release couplings. Furthermore, a quick-change device is possible in order to mount the DUT by hand outside of the test chamber. The burst pressure test rig can be equipped with two pressure circuits to fulfil a large range of testing requirements. One circuit up to 50 bar with our patented and wear-and-tear free pressure fine control method. The other circuit could involve a pneumatic intensifier to generate pressures of 400 bar. Destructive burst tests can be performed with water, oil, or water glycol for example.
Burst Pressure Test Rig for Pipes, Tubes and Hoses
Hose, tubes, pipes and pipe joints are frequently required to go through various testing procedures, including burst tests. The components must safely withstand pre-defined pressures to pass quality control or be validated during R&D. To test their quality and material strength burst tests are conducted to prove the component behaves as expected under pressure and can withstand higher pressures than the operating pressure. Test benches by Poppe + Potthoﬀ use state-of-the-art technology, which makes it possible to determine burst pressures within seconds while documenting the process and collecting various data points for in-depth analysis.
Pressure test bench for hoses with laser measurement
The test stand is a self-sufficient system and enables proof pressure tests, burst pressure tests and pressure drop tests on hoses. The freely programmable pressure control up to 60 bar is achieved by our patented wear-free precision pressure control method. This method is very accurate, repeatable and particularly suitable for large expansion volumes. Above a pressure of 60 bar a hydraulic pressure intensifier takes over and enables exact pressure ramps of up to 600 bar.
The test stand can be equipped with an automatic length, torsion and strain measurement system. The data is automatically stored in the system and enables efficient and quick checks.
In addition, the system can be offered with quick-release couplings (adapters) so that the test item does not have to be prepared in advance.
Burst- and Pressure Cycle Test Rig
The test stand is a self-sufficient system and enables bursting pressure and pressure cycle tests with trapezoidal (square) and sine (wave) curves. The test stand is ideally suited for components with large displacement volumes. The test stand is equipped with two separate chambers and has a specially developed flex pressure intensifier that can handle a wide range of component volumes without losing accuracy. The test stand can create freely programmable pressure ramps and can thus cover various test requirements.

PRESSURE TEST BENCHES AND APPLICATIONS
PRECISE, REPEATABLE AND RELIABLE
As a specialist in pressure testing technology and state-of-the-art test rigs, Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau supports the development and production of particularly resilient components made of various materials – especially for automotive, shipbuilding and mechanical engineering as well as fluid and the medical industry. We offer individually designed test benches such as burst pressure test rigs, pressure cycle test benches, leak test systems, functional test rigs and autofrettage systems.
Pressure change test stand with vacuum testing
Subject cooling systems of ECUs, PTC heaters, high-voltage coolant auxiliary heaters, ACDC and DCDC converters, and other media-carrying components to pressure tests while controlling the ambient and media temperature of, for example, water-glycol at temperatures from -40 °C to 140 °C.
Function test stand: battery simulation under the influence of temperature
For functional testing of media-carrying components, a temperature-controlled volume flow (e.g. 30l/min) can be generated with the Poppe + Potthoff test benches. In addition, a component from e-mobility can be energized if required.
Leakage test stand
Poppe + Potthoff leak test stands can be used to test various components and assemblies for leaks by means of a pressure drop. Depending on the test requirement, our systems can be designed including vacuum unit and low pressure or high pressure module for optimal leak testing. In addition, Poppe + Potthoff offers e.g. bubble tests in a water bath / underwater tests with air and gas.
Compressed air booster
Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau GmbH supplies compressor units and pressure control systems up to 400 bar. We offer ready-to-connect units to increase the existing pressure for pneumatic and hydraulic applications. This allows the performance of already existing plants to be expanded flexibly and efficiently.
1050 Bar Helium / Nitrogen / Hydrogen
A leak test bench equipped with a pressure module up to 1050 bar, an optional integrated climate chamber and a gas sniffer (e.g. Inficon) to detect leakage on H2 components such as ontank valves, hoses, pipes, fittings, regulators, valves and fuel cell components.
Household appliance manufacturers are aware of the importance of ensuring that their media-carrying components are leak-proof from day one and that components can withstand a pressure load higher than the operating pressure. Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau supports the industry with various pressure testing systems.
